SAN DIEGO – Addressing an immediate need for children’s clothing and school uniforms in Hurricane-ravaged Houston, the San Diego Unified School District Tuesday sent out its own plea for donations.
According to a posting on the SDUSD website, the Houston Independent School District needs children’s clothes of all sizes — clean and in reasonably good repair — along with school uniforms and supplies. Families and communities are urged to make monetary donations to the Houston district’s foundation at HoustonISDFoundation.org/donate.
About 50 schools in Houston have been flooded, according to San Diego school officials.
Many families are staying in less-damaged schools and children do not have extra clothes or school supplies. A large number have lost their homes and most of their belongings.
Clothing and supplies can be sent to Delmar Stadium, 2020 Mangum Road, Houston, Texas, 77092.
